This is a classic beer made with special malts and raw materials that produce its amber color, as well as its body and rather dry, light character that distinguishes it from other dark beers. In contrast to the general perception that traditional dark beers are bitter and “heavy,” Bavaria Dark has very different characteristics, due to its hops content. Bavaria Dark was launched in 2001.

Copper color with fine co2 and a beige rocky head -- retention is better than expected Aroma is malty, with a notable skunk presence (sulfur?). Flavor is sweet and lightly malty, with a metallic finish. Drinkable, crisp mouthfeel. No earthshaking experience, but an interesting rendition of a dunkle. The aroma is a little unsettling, but overall, fairly well balanced. Bavaria Dark was the most drinkable beer I tied in Costa Rica.

A local beer that was above the other lagers out there. Woody with a light toast character. Light body yet refreshing.

[email protected] Jose, Costa Rica. Blackish beer with a browny/reddish tinge and a strong head. The aroma is malty and sweet. The flavour is malty with some dryness and yeast. Overall a reasonable malty beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle poured. Much thanks to my Dad for constantly thinking of me while on travel. Pours exactly like a cola. Red tinted brown color with a soda fizz head. Twist off cap too. Had to taste this to be sure it wasn’t soda. Malty aroma with metallic notes. Flavor is light and smooth up front, but a metallic hit towards the end. Bold malts. Actually drinks pretty decent. Better than what I have learned to expect from island dark beers.

12 oz bottle in San Jose, CR. Pours dark brown with tall, creamy, off-white head and nice lacing. Aroma is of toasted malt and dark fruit. Body is medium and slightly crisp. Taste is of toasted malt, some earthy hops, chocolate and dark fruit. Finish is long and semi-dry. Better than most crap in Costa Rica.

bottle, at colibri argentinian steakhouse in carrillo. light brown with a thin semblance of an off-white head; aroma of sweet tinned fruits; faint roasty bitterness and not much else going on

12oz bottle. Clear dark brown, with a big foamy beige head. Malty, toasty aroma. Hint of rye and toast, with a mildly bitter finish. Not that great.

can - decent in the right setting, but nothing special. light malt flavors and a little dry finish in what otherwise would be a standard macro type beer.

Butelka wypita w Kostaryce. Kolor ciemnobrązowy,piana średnia. Lekko palone słody, smak słodowy, lekki karmel, wytrawne.

TimE (6130) - Tokyo, JAPAN - APR 21, 2015
Lots of chocolate malt and relatively smooth body for a mainstream beer. Bananas and unknown chemicals dominate the mouth. Better than expected.

Ok, so I'm on vacation in Costa Rica and drinking this beer. That means it gets a bit of a head start right there. Poured from a bottle and it is a ruby brown in color and makes a thin off white head. Smells a bit metallic and of cereal. Tastes of malt and little else. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
